Tried this out today.  Am I doing something horribly wrong?  My character is extremely fragile.  On my second T10 rift, I got one- or two-shotted by elites so many times my equipment broke, and I was only half way through the rift.  Granted, I'm not very good at playing this build yet.  And the equipment on my follower sucks so he's not healing me much yet.  But still...

 

I did make sure I have the Together as One rune selected.  I'm running rubies instead of diamonds, which I can change.  But the way you make it sound, nothing in a T10 rift is a serious threat, and I'm dying *constantly*.  Sometimes I die so fast I don't even know what hit me. huh.png

It might be a lack of proper gear, the guide does assume you have farmed the character out. You can definitely swap jewelry and gems around a bit for more toughness, try Band of Might and a few Diamonds in the armor sockets.

I don't understand why f/r is the rings to choose. We only proc half of the f/r combo, so why not Coe and band of night as the best choice? It seems blatantly obvious as the best setup.

Furious Charge and Ancient Spear fulfill the generator and spender requirements for Focus and Restraint, so you're getting the whole proc.

Quite correct. To add to that, Band of Might is considered too safe of an option in high end Softcore leaderboard pushes, where people prefer glass cannon and fishing for optimal rifts. I can only recommend Band of Might in hardcore, or if you are not trying for competitive ladder.

I think BoW is overkill for TX. The build doesn't have any problems dealing damage, it's getting one-shotted by a bad affix. Swapping out the rings for a Band of Might and Avarice Band have actually improved my average clear time, even though I was only dying once every third rift or so. I don't have to be anywhere near as careful about placement and I don't have to loop around to pick up gold to fuel my speed procs.

Sorry, what's "BoW"?  And did you mean changing the rings improved your average clear time, rather than "increased" it?

I also found myself dying very frequently and was pretty frustrated and unimpressed with the build, at least for us old, slow-witted players who may not have millisecond-scale reflexes, or sometimes even second-scale.

 

As suggested in this thread, I swapped out my Focus/Restraint for Ring of Might and Unity, and found I had become completely invincible and wasn't killing stuff perceptibly slower. I didn't miss the damage at all. After that, the build seems sweet and I appreciate it.

Bastions of Will, and thanks, I edited it.

 Ah, right.  I knew BoW was familiar, but I get so used to saying F&R that I forgot the real name.  Thanks.  When I get back around to playing with this build, I'm going to try this.

Since Boon of the hoarder is useless in a Greater Rift, what would be the best alternative gem to use?

Taeguk ?

For people having issues with fragility, having mostly ancient gear made a HUGE difference.  Currently progressing through mid 50's GRifts without the GRift mod because I'm too lazy to swap gems between rift types.  Plus, also helps if you have target ADD.  This is not a tanker, don't stand there and spank at things and expect to be ok.

      A new season is almost upon us so it's time to take a look at what it will be bringing! Along with a blood teddy bear and pretty great new portrait frame, coming the real reason to roll a new season is the new sets coming with Haedrig's gift, so here's what's coming on February 23rd:
      Barbarian – Might of the Earth Crusader – Thorns of the Invoker Demon Hunter – The Shadow’s Mantle Monk – Monkey King’s Garb Necromancer – Grace of Inarius Witch Doctor – Raiment of the Jade Harvester Wizard – Firebird’s Finery
        Season 13 (source)
      Season 13 begins soon! For those among you who enjoy the fresh start a Season brings, we wanted to give you a glimpse of what to expect before you race out the gate.
       
      New Cosmetic Rewards
      As per tradition, Season 13 will introduce new cosmetic rewards, obtainable by progressing through the Season Journey.
      In addition to the Helm and Shoulders slots of the exclusive Conqueror Set, a brand-new series of portraits themed around Imperius will be available. Those who enjoy collecting pets will also be pleased to see a new arrival—Blaine’s Bear! While traveling together, you may be tempted to ask him why he’s covered in blood, or try removing the sharp objects he carries around. We strongly advise against this.

       
      Season Journey Rewards
      If you’ve been playing the past few Seasons diligently and reached Conqueror in the Season Journey each time, you’ve accrued a few extra stash tabs. Players who have not yet earned a total of four stash tabs via the Season Journey can still unlock an additional one by completing the following tasks at the Conqueror tier:
      Complete a Torment XIII Rift in under 5 minutes Complete Greater Rift 60 solo Kill Greed on Torment XIII Kill Cydaea on Torment XIII in under 15 seconds Reforge a Legendary or Set item Augment an Ancient item with a Level 50 or greater Legendary Gem Level three Legendary Gems to 55 Complete two Conquests  
      Seasonal Conquests
      Speaking of Conquests, we’re rotating those, too! Love going fast? Sprinter and Speed Racer will be making a return. Enjoy testing your mettle in Greater Rifts? Divinity and Lionhearted are also coming back. If you’d rather max out your kill count with Cursed Chests, Curses! and Stars Align will be right up your alley. Those who enjoy seeing how far they can go without Set Items will get a kick out of The Thrill and Super Human. Finally, if you’re keen to show off your mastery of Set Dungeons, Masters of the Universe and Masters of Sets will be available once more.

       
      Haedrig’s Gift
      Finally, just as before, you’ll get a shiny new Class Set courtesy of Haedrig’s Gift for completing certain chapters in the Season Journey. We’ve listed the available Sets below. For those new to Seasons, here’s how it works:
      Completing Chapters 2, 3, and 4 of the Season Journey will reward you with three Haedrig’s Gifts. Each Gift contains a few pieces from one of your Class Sets. Players can only unlock one Class Set in this manner per Season across Hardcore and Non-Hardcore, so choose wisely!
      The set you will receive depends on the Class of the character you’re playing when you open each Haedrig’s Gift. To collect a full Class Set, you’ll need to open all three on the same character.
      Here are the sets granted by Haedrig’s Gift in Season 13:
      Barbarian – Might of the Earth Crusader – Thorns of the Invoker Demon Hunter – The Shadow’s Mantle Monk – Monkey King’s Garb Necromancer – Grace of Inarius Witch Doctor – Raiment of the Jade Harvester Wizard – Firebird’s Finery
       
      Frequently Asked Questions
      Q: When does Season 13 start?
      A: Season 13 begins Friday, February 23 at 5:00 p.m. PST in North America, 5:00 p.m. CET in Europe, and 5:00 p.m. KST in Asia. For time zone conversion, see this site.
      Q: When are the non-Seasonal Leaderboards being wiped?
      A: Non-Seasonal Leaderboards are tied to what we call “Eras,” each of which lasts about 6–12 months. The most recent era began November 9. For more information on Eras, please see this post.
      Q: What will happen to older Seasonal and Era records?
      A: Starting with Season 10, we removed old personal bests from Season 1. When Season 13 arrives, we will remove old personal bests from Season 4, and so on. We will be doing the same for personal bests from the previous Era when the next one goes live.
      Seasonal Leaderboard records are not being cleared and will remain archived both in game and on our website.

      On January 12, Blizzard temporarily disabled the legendary effect on Bone Ringer. Players that utilized the bug to gain an unfair advantage over other classes recently had their accounts suspended.
      It was difficult to track down accounts involved in the exploit, but Blizzard eventually issued account suspensions and removed affected players from the leaderboards on February 9, 2018.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Greetings all,

      A couple weeks ago, an exploit was discovered in which Necromancers could receive an unfairly high advantage over other classes. Utilizing this exploit required both implicit knowledge and intention to execute and, as a result, we are issuing account suspensions and removing affected records from the leaderboards.

      You may be wondering why we're executing this now rather than when we originally fixed the exploit; the long and short of it is that this was a very complicated issue to track and we are, as always, dedicated to ensuring we are not punishing players who may be innocent.

      Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to maintain as honest and fair a gaming environment as we can.
